Alcohol hand gel is placed at various parts of the ward for staff and visitors to use, especially when entering and leaving the ward. Flowers are not permitted on the ward for infection control reasons, if you would like to bring a gift for a patient you may wish to bring good quality toiletries especially soap, moisturising body wash or talcum powder.
To families of all our patients, we wanted to give a reminder that sadly, at both Bedford and the Luton & Dunstable University Hospital, we are still unable to allow any visitors on site, unless there are exceptional circumstances, for example in maternity or children’s departments, or for those patients who are receiving palliative treatment at the end of their lives, on a case-by-case basis.
At both our hospitals changes are being made to support services, and we would now ask that you contact the wards using the direct lines found here for Bedford and here for Luton and Dunstable University Hospital.
